Hamburger in a Bowl

Hamburger in a Bowl

I made this Hamburger in a Bowl while Jeff, Dave & I were hanging out in a cabin in Crestone, CO.

A quick and delicious meal doesn’t need bread, it just needs a bowl. :)

I was going to call this Paleo Hamburger Helper but I figured that wouldn’t go over so well. Truthfully I’ve never had Hamburger Helper in my life so I can’t say what it tastes like or compare the flavors of this Hamburger in a Bowl recipe to it, but maybe you can.

I don’t typically make a one dish meal but I was using all the ingredients we had picked up from the local grocery store.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Yield: 3-4 Servings


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2lbs grass-fed ground beef
  • 14.5oz can of organic diced tomatoes
  • 2 large portobello mushroom caps, chopped
  • garlic powder, to taste
  • sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • paprika, to taste
  • 4 leaves organic kale, thinly sliced


  1. Add onion and garlic to a medium sized skillet over medium heat.
  2. After 3-5 minutes add ground beef. Mash the meat and toss to combine with onion and garlic.
  3. Once meat starts to brown, add diced tomatoes, mushrooms and season with garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper and paprika. Note: The more paprika you add the spicier it will get. Give everything a good stir to combine and let cook until meat is done (around 10-12 minutes).
  4. Ladle your meat into a bowl, garnish with sliced kale and serve.
  5. Enjoy! :)
